But in the eyes of the audience, it is the righteous thing because they connect with the emotion that's why Sarkar becomes more powerful as a leader."

He added: "Sarkar 3 is full of grey characters. There is no such hero or heroine or a villain as such. All of them strongly believe in their own convictions."
